Despite the triteness of the theme (Dern is in charge of maintaining the last remnants of the earth's vegetation), the film is enjoyable for its intimacy, seriousness, and intelligent character work, virtues not perpetuated by the subsequent new wave.

A movie out of the ordinary -- especially if you like science fiction.

Silent Running is no jerry-built science fiction film, but it's a little too simple-minded to be consistently entertaining.
